This Pinot Noir comes from clay-limestone terraces on the height of the Aude Valley, in the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains. The vines are pruned according to the “Cordon de Royat” (trellised) and “Guyot” (trellised) methods. Relatively low yields (50 hl/ha).
The winemaking process for this Pinot Noir is made of cold pre-fermentation maceration (about a week) and one week fermentation at controlled temperatures. 25% of the final blend is aged in oak barrels for 6 to 9 months.

Wine of France Pinot Noir 750 ml.
Grape Varieties: Black Pinot 100 %.
Tasting Notes : Our Pinot Noir has a dark colour, with ruby tints. It has scents of red and black berries mixed with floral notes, together with hints of delicate wood and vanilla. It is complex and long on the palate. It displays aromas of crushed black fruits (blackberries, blackcurrants, cherries) and jam. The tannins are plump and well-integrated. Unlike many Pinot Noirs grown in the Pays d’Oc, this wine is not dominated by an excessive over-ripeness.
Food & Wine: Serve at 17 – 18°C with charcuteries, white meat (such as chicken with a cream sauce) and light cheeses.
